The Museum is a collection of both exhibitions and vessels, illustration Russian importance at sea. Seeing it all is almost impossible, so make your choices.

A lot of stuff which has to do with the oceans has been gathered here and it is a rather good museum. The aquarium is really good.

The museum is ok but not that big. The price is a bit more than what it's worth but if you have the time take a look.
